Butterflies in our Cholsey meadow today included Brown Argus and Dingy Skipper.

Yes there are Marsh Fritillaries by the Thames at Cholsey, but there is no way that they got there by themselves! Good reports of Club-tail Dragonflies there however.

There were large numbers of Early Marsh Orchids in nearby fields last year - I am told there are even more this year.
